Reader's Review


Thank you, dear Moshe, for another enriching dvar Torah. I am grateful for your insights, and challenged by your comments. Indeed, a moral and just society is an example throughout the book of Bereshit. So much so, that Yaakov’s blessing to Shimon and Levi reflects the importance of living a life filled with ethics and tolerance, even more than zealotry. An example to be followed especially nowadays. Eliane S. Meyer Amis des Invalides de Tzahal Beit Halohem – Genève, Switzerland

Nice essay, Moshe. Good and solid thinking, Independent assessment of our people and our traditions and our culture. Jesha Krejner Re: Reading the Book of Exodus December 28, 2013


Dear Moshe, I wanted to let you know that we have posted your article on Hebron at the Jewish Voice. I had hoped it would be up before Shabbat, but your ideas are such that they remain important even if they did not coincide with Chaye Sara. Thank you for the insightful piece. Rabbi David M. Levin [email protected] JewishRelationshipsInitiative.com www.RabbiDavidLevin.com
